Christine writes, "I am attaching some pictures of the tombstone of James and Margaret HENDERSON.
There is a biography
of them on the Rensselaer County GenWeb site. James HENDERSON
was the first town supervisor of the Town of Poestenkill and is written up in
History of Rensselaer County, New York
by Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester.
James and Margaret HENDERSON were my great-great-grandparents. They are buried in the New Mt. Ida Cemetery
on Pinewoods Avenue in Troy. Several of their children are buried in this plot, as well."
